Hi Guys, me again.

I have a copy of Climax! Mystery Theater "Casino Royale" that I would like to upload.

Would anyone happen to know if it is in the Public domain?

I believe that most of the Climax episodes are in PD but seeing as it's a version of James Bond, MGM may have snapped up the rights to it.

It's apparently not on LOC's list of copyrighted material. I'm not very good at this, but as I understand it, there seems to be just one episode of 'Climax' that's still protected, namely 'Shadow of a memory' from 1957.
I hope more qualified users can confirm that, because I would love to see 'Casino Royale'.

So, as I understand it, the shows themselves aren't actually copyrighted but because they're based on copyrighted books or plays, we can't watch them. I knew it would be something like that.

Somebody told me about a year and half ago that all episodes of Climax were public domain, so I meant to upload Casino Royale then. I just could never find it. Now, to hear it can't be uploaded, so I suppose it's just as well I didn't.
